GUEST,Iona BS: Young Earth Creationism Eureka! (1606* d) RE: BS: Young Earth Creationism Eureka! 18 Feb 12

There was a link to an evolutionary article posted here a while back. I read it. Evidence for evolution? Because human kidneys while developing resemble the kidneys of hagfish?? *stifles giggle* I'm sorry, if that's evidence for evolution, then my name's Bianca Castafiore.(If any of you grew up on Tintin.....) Here's a few quotes direclty from the article;

why would a creator bestow the embryo with three kidneys, trashing the first two (one of which doesn't do anything) before making the final one?

The author here is insinuating that the 'third kidney' doesn't do anything. A.K.A a vestigial structure. Funny thing about vestigial structures is this: there used to be a number of them in the body. For instance the appendix. Not too long ago, (no wait, I guess they still do it today) medical 'experts' would just rip out the appendix at the first sign of trouble, because after all, it's just a useless little post-evolution piece of junk. Now we know that it's not, and it's thought to be important to the immune system. Same with the thyroid and other organs! But over the years, the many 'vestigial organs' that were thought to exist in the human body have been whittled down to zero. And I think the same thing could be said about this "third kidney".... we still don't know everything about the human body. I shan't be surprised if they discover that these two 'trash kidneys' don't serve a purpose. God doesn't create useless things.
